Queen Victoria dismisses her from the Shadow Council, and the only person who can explain anything, Lord Akeldama, unexpectedly leaves town. To top it all off, Alexia is attacked by homicidal mechanical ladybugs, indicating, as only ladybugs can, the fact that all of London’s vampires are now very much interested in seeing Alexia quite thoroughly dead.
While Lord Maccon elects to get progressively more inebriated and Professor Lyall desperately tries to hold the Woolsey werewolf pack together, Alexia flees England for Italy in search of the mysterious Templars. Only they know enough about the preternatural to explain her increasingly inconvenient condition, but they may be worse than the vampires — and they’re armed with pesto.
Après les événements survenus en Écosse, elle est retournée vivre chez ses parents. La reine Victoria l’a exclue du Cabinet fantôme, et la seule personne qui pourrait donner une explication à sa délicate condition actuelle, Lord Akeldama, a inopinément quitté la ville. Pour couronner le tout, Alexia découvre que les vampires de Londres ont juré sa mort.
Tandis que Lord Maccon met toute son énergie à boire, et que le Professeur Lyall tente désespérément de maintenir la cohésion au sein de la meute Woolsey, Alexia s’enfuit en Italie à la recherche des mystérieux Templiers. Ils sont les seuls à pouvoir l’aider. Mais ils pourraient aussi s’avérer pires que les vampires. Surtout armés de pesto.
In the Hollows, where the natural and the supernatural co-exist – not always peacefully – desperate times often call for unorthodox measures. But bounty hunter-witch Rachel Morgan did the absolutely unthinkable to save the lives of her friends: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins have come home to haunt her.
As Rachel hunts for the truth behind a terrifying murder, the discovery of a shocking family secret is about to throw her entire life into question. And the long-lost ancient knowledge she seeks resides in the demonic ever-after. But there are some lines that should never be crossed–like the one Rachel Morgan’s stepping over…again!
It’s Valentine’s Day and we’re preparing our friend Iris’s wedding. But when we get word that the Supe Community Center has been bombed, things get really ugly. The evil coyote shifters-the Koyanni-are back and Newkirk, their new leader has joined forces with a group of rogue sorcerers. Then, just as we think things can’t get worse, the demon lord Shadow Wing sends in a new front man, and life really goes to hell…
Revenge of the Spellmans/La revanche des Spellman (Spellman, 3) – Lisa Lutz
Having been ordered into therapy after getting a little too close to her previous subject, former private investigator Izzy Spellman is wisely taking a break from Spellman Inc, having embarked on a less controversial career as a barmaid. But when her boss, Milo, simultaneously cuts her bartending hours and introduces her to a ‘friend’ looking for a private eye, Izzy reluctantly finds herself with a new client. A suspicious husband who wants his wife tailed, it would appear to be a routine case involving nothing more than that most boring of PI rituals: surveillance. But Izzy soon discovers that she’s not the only person keeping a close eye on Mrs Ernie Black and with each passing hour the Case of the Wayward Wife throws up more questions than answers.
Dialogues insolents, situations hilarantes, rythme endiablé font de cette Revanche des Spellman un excellent cru. On retrouve avec plaisir cette famille attachante qui évolue au fil du temps et prend ici une humanité inattendue.
